6 ways with doilies
Jo Nevill has some lovely, lacy ideas using simple doilies for all-occasion cards
From pretty dresses to Christmas trees, there’s so much you can do with doilies
When we think of doilies, we think of plain white pretty decorations to show off our cakes and biscuits, but these lacy pieces of paper can create a big impact in your cardmaking. They also come in different colours and some even with patterns! I used Dovecraft Back to Basics Perfectly Pink Paper Lace Doilies together with others to make this selection of simple but eye-catching cards. Just with some simple folds you can make anything from Christmas trees and angels to dresses and lace collars on a pretty blouse. Team your doilies with embellishments and you can make stunning cards that anyone would be thrilled to receive!
